Women in Printed Electronics


The OE-A Women in Printed Electronics inititiative raises awareness of the benefits of diversity to the printed electronics industry and beyond.

OE-A Women in Printed Electronics

Printed electronics has already reached many industries and is successful in numerous fields. Nevertheless, there is a great potential for possibilities and innovation waiting to be discovered. The laws of economics and many studies of diversity tell us that if we tapped the entire pool of human resources and talent, our collective performance would improve . It is up to us to demonstrate that diversity enables us to innovate more, better and in a healthier way. Printed electronics also has so much potential because it does not stick to old and "rigid" concepts, but creates new, pioneering products through the cooperation of different disciplines, breaking up all thought patterns. These rigid thought patterns can best be broken by bringing together as many different points of view and impulses as possible. With this discussion we would therfore like to raise awareness of the benefits of diversity to the printed electronics industry and beyond.
